Diabetes and its prevention
Diabetes is a disease of lifestyle. It is one of the eight main diseases. Diabetes is now extremely widespread before the age of 35. Diabetes is the root cause of many other serious disorders. People who used to sleep by 10 p.m. and wake up at 5 a.m. now sleep only until 12 a.m. and wake up late. Many diseases are caused by this shift in timing. Waking up late causes “thamogunam,” as well as “Daathu” and “Agni.” Sleeping late at night causes “Vata” to rise. There must be a balance of “Vata”, “Pitha”, and “Kapha”. Increasing “Kapham” by waking up late. When food is consumed at the improper moment, it has a bad impact on the “Pitha.” Each and every human body.
Every human body is composed of five primary constituents. Ayurveda describes 20 different forms of diabetes, each with its own set of medications. With the help of Ayurvedic medicines, it is possible to control all types of diabetes. Pockanchery has created a unique diabetic treatment method. There are no negative effects to employing the Ayurvedic way of diabetic therapy, and patients end up feeling even more energised. The majority of Ayurvedic medications are derived from nature and are commonly consumed as part of our everyday diet. As a result, the medications used to treat one disease will not cause another.
Since ayurveda considers diabetes mainly as excess in kapha dosha, it recommends a Kapha-pacifying diet to keep diabetes under control. The guidelines include eating more foods that are bitter, astringent, or pungent in taste – and refraining from the consumption of foods that are sweet, sour, or salty.
Ayurvedic dietary prescription takes many factors into accounts, such as age, body constitution, season, and other environmental and social factors, so a consultation with a trained practitioner is necessary to make specific individual recommendations.
The Ayurvedic perspective on balancing Kapha is consistent with Western medicine’s current understanding of the proper diet for diabetes, which recommends minimizing simple carbohydrates, fats, and other heavy foods while increasing “lighter” foods such as beans (as the main protein source), whole grains, and lighter fruits and vegetables.
